The Best G Shock For Kids & Teens

Casio G Shocks are great all-round digital watches that are tough enough to withstand anything a kid can throw at it, while still having enough functions to keep them excited about their watch.

There are lots of options in the G Shock range that suit kids and teens, from the colorful and bold to the more standard black or even camo for boys loving the outdoors.

In this detailed review I want to show you all the options you have available for kids, so that you can make the best choice for your child!

1. Casio Baby-G in Black

Casio Women's BGD140-1ACR Baby-G Shock-Resistant Multi-Function Digital Watch

Starting with something that would work for both boys and girls, this classic Baby G from Casio is all black, so will go with almost anything.

Add to that all the functions you get out of the box and everyone will love it: 12/24hr time, stop watch, countdown, alarms, world time and a great backlight. On top of that, like all G shock style watches it also comes with a crazy 200m water resistance and built in shock resistance – so your kids can do anything with it on.

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 42 x 16.6mm

2. Casio Baby G Analog Digital

Heading in the opposite direction with a very bold white and gold model, many girls out there will love this watch. It certainly makes a striking statement!

The functions of this watch are more or less the same as the one above, except this watch also has an analog (aka hands) display as well as digital. The color and arrangement of the display also differs and the water resistance is a little less at 100m. But that won’t stop you from taking it in the water swimming!

  • Japanese Quartz Movement (Analog & Digital display)
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • Plastic case and band
  • Water resistant to 100m (330ft)
  • Case size: 43mm

3. Casio Baby G Analog Digital in Multicolor

Casio Women's Baby G Quartz 100M WR Shock Resistant Resin Color: White with Multi Color Face (Model BA-112-7ACR)

White models of the Baby G are super-popular and this one, although a little too crazy for some, will be just right for others. It has all the same features and style, but instead of a gold theme has a very bold and colorful display.

  • Japanese Quartz Movement (Analog & Digital display)
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • Plastic case and band
  • Water resistant to 100m (330ft)
  • Case size: 43mm

4. Casio Baby-G G-MS Black and Rose-Tone

Ladies' Casio Baby-G G-MS Black and Rose-Tone Watch MSGS200G-1A

Moving more into the classier style Baby G, this is the G-MS range from Casio. As you can see from the style, the stainless steel, rose gold colored case is a step up in terms of looks.

It has all the features you would expect from G Shock too. The only place they have skimped a little is with the 100m water resistance, but given you can still swim with it, I think Casio can be forgiven.

This watch also runs on solar, which is a great feature to have as it saves you from changing the battery (and reducing the water resistance in the process).

  • Japanese Quartz Movement with solar power
  • Stop watch, Countdown, Alarms, world time, LED backlight
  • Stainless steel case and Polyurethane band
  • Water resistant to 100m (330ft)
  • Case size: 48.5 x 11mm

5. Casio Baby-G Square in Green

Casio Baby-G Quartz Movement Green Dial Ladies Watch BGA-200-3EDR

I thought I would include this one because it is just so unique. Sure, it won’t appeal to most children, but some will absolutely love it.

It has a very simple face on it which displays both digital and analog (hands) time. It also comes with all the G Shock functions we know and love, so although it appears simple, you won’t miss anything with this watch.

 

  • Japanese Quartz Movement (Analog & Digital display)
  • Neon illuminator (backlight LED with afterglow), world time, 29 time zones with 48 cities, daylight savings time indicator, stopwatch, countdown timer, daily alarm, hourly time signal, and full auto-calendar
  • Plastic case and band
  • Water resistant to 100m (330ft)
  • Case size: 37 x 7mm

6. Casio Baby G in Vivid Blue

Another very bold color choice from Casio, this model comes with the extra protection of bumper bars on the face. So, if you think your child might get rough with their watch, this style is perfect.

The face has a very clear day, date and time display, so there is no excuse for coming home late. And all the toerh functions of a Casio G Shock are in there including the top-level 200m water resistance – great for kids who love the water.

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 42 x 16.6mm

7. Casio Baby-G Black Whale Digital

Casio Baby G Digital Dial Polyurethane Strap Ladies Watch BG-6903-1

For something a little more simple and less bold in color, this black model is just the ticket. It has a simple day, date and time display, as you would expect, as well as all the necessary functions. 

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 42 x 16.6mm

8. Casio Baby G in Black

Another all black affair, this Baby G has an analog display with simple to read while hands that glow in the dark. 

It also comes with world time that you can use on the second, smaller display and a reasonable 100m water resistance.

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 41 x 13mm

9. Casio Baby G in Black

Casio 2018 BGD-560-1CR Watch Baby-G Classic Digital Black

For those who want something robust, but also reminiscent of the good old 80s Casio watches (you can see a full collection of those here) this is the watch for you.

It has the old-style look of the original Casio, along with the plain black color. However, because it is a Baby G it also comes with the usual protection – 200m water resistance. Something the older Casios just can’t compete with.

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 41 x 13mm

10. Casio G Shock in Camo

Casio G-Shock Men's GD-120CM Camo Sport Watch

If you have a boy (or perhaps even a girl) who has dreams of being the next GI Joe, then this Camo colored G Shock is a great option. It is of course a little larger than the Baby Gs (at 51mm), which is why I have not included many other G Shocks, but teens or larger kids could certainly wear it.

Yes, it has all the G Shock features including shock and water resistance (200m) as well as solar, which is great – because you don’t need to replace the batter! 

  • Japanese Quartz Movement
  • Stop watch, Countdown, military time, world time, LED backlight
  • ABS plastic case and resin band
  • Water resistant to 200m (660ft)
  • Case size: 51 x 15mm
